Let's talk about car show scheduling and how to weed out gossip, rumors and fake news.

We will have two guest on the show. Brad Jancaric from Brew City Gassers and Joe Oppermen, Director of Iola Car Show and Swap.
RING BROTHERS - We are checking in with Wisconsin’s own award-winning builder and automobile products manufacturer. What have they been up to? How is their product division doing with all these “stay at home” quarantine orders? Are they planning any new builds for the 2020 SEMA show and how are they handling the stress of topping last year’s Builder of the Year award?
CHRIS SLACK - Chris Slack is the Parts Manager at Ivan Gandrud Chevrolet in the Green Bay, Wisconsin area. Having the title of parts manager seems a little understated. He’s more like a businessman clothed in a parts uniform. With his guidance, the GM Parts Department is regarded as one of the best in the country.
Captn’ Bob and Arlo are going to turn back the dial with great interviews and the music you all have been asking for.

Our second guest is no stranger to the drag racing world. Randy Henning is the co-owner and operator of Great Lakes Dragaway located in Union Grove, WI. We wanted to check on to see how this Corona Virus is impacting his track. We like to think that Randy and his partner Maurice are historic keepers of the track.
